Posted Breed: Brussels Griffon / Shih Tzu. It is unclear if a cuter dog ever existed!? Please meet Snuggles, the most adorable dog on the planet. We think she is a mix of Brussels Griffon and Shih Tzu weighing a petite 6 pounds. She was found as a stray and after days waiting for her owner to claim him, they didn’t. We feel honored and privileged to give this 11 year old snuggle bug (hence the name) her 2nd chance at getting the love and life she deserves. She is sweet with everyone, prefers to be on you lap or in your purse and has lovely calm energy. When you look at her, she looks like a pup! Of course her silly tongue is one of the many charming things to love about snuggles! She is healthy, up to date on vaccinations, spayed and microchipped.

More About Brussels Griffon Breed
If you’re looking to adopt a dog and don’t know where to start, puppyfinder.com is an excellent source for information about adopting a dog and will connect you with hundreds of shelters across the US that have adoptable puppies and older dogs waiting for forever homes.
  1. Do your research – find out what types of dogs would be a good fit for your lifestyle and the activity level of your family. Also keep in mind the grooming needs of certain breeds that might require frequent maintenance.
  2. Decide what you can handle – before you get sucked in by all the adorable puppy eyes you’re about to see, think long and hard about the appropriate age dog for your family or if you are capable of caring for a special needs dog. Puppies are a lot of work, if you don’t have time for potty training and obedience classes you’ll want to consider an older dog. There are plenty of middle aged, vibrant dogs up for adoption as well as many senior dogs that would be a great fit for a family looking for a more subdued dog with lots of love to give.
  3. Learn about the shelters and their adoption policies – It might be easier to start looking at shelters within a certain radius of home but don’t be afraid to venture out to other states as well. Many states have larger populations of adoptable dogs and their shelters are willing to transport pets to suitable adopting families. Some shelters might have requirements for a home visit, a fenced yard or require you to visit the pet multiple times before you commit to adopting. Understand that the shelters are doing their best to place the pets in suitable homes and these requirements are in the best interest of both you and the pet.
  4. Start looking… Once you know what you’re looking for and what to expect you can start your search through thousands of adoptable dogs. PuppyFinder allows you to search by age, breed, location and gender.
  5. Meet in person. Whenever possible it is best to meet the animal in person before agreeing to bring them into your life. Even though photos and descriptions can tell you a bit about a dog, you can’t get a true feeling for the animal until you are able to interact with them and make sure they are a good fit for your entire family, including other pets.

He is not clingy, but never turns down an opportunity for a good snuggle. He loves to run and play off leash so an owner with a back yard would be ideal, but he would also do well in any active home looking for a running or hiking buddy!

      Posted Breed: Terrier. Julie is a 1 year old, 9-pound terrier mix in need of a forever home! She has never met another animal she doesn’t get along with, including cats and she is great with children. She is crate trained and house trained and she walks very well on leash. Julie is a wonderful, loving puppy who likes to play and cuddle. She plays with toys and knows basic commands (sit, stay, lie down, potty, crate.) Julie is considered a special needs case due to having anxiety - her anxious condition requires that she have a structured daily schedule and plenty of daily exercise. She takes medication for her anxiety which costs approximately $50/month and it helps enormously. Julie is a courtesy posting, she is not available for adoption through Wags and Walks.

      Breed: Maltese
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Young
      Location: West Hollywood, CA
      Posted Breed: Maltese. Groot is a happy go lucky 7 month old Maltese pup weighing about 9 pounds. When we saved this charming, active and friendly boy-he had limited function of his back legs. This of course did not slow him down one bit. He was busy scooting his way around everywhere. Luckily this silly non shedding guy is in physical therapy where he is strengthening his back legs and is able to stand on them, even for a short while. We were certain he was paralyzed and would need wheels, but this resilient guy is tough and fighting to stand again. We can’t promise he will be able to run one day, but we can promise that he is one of the friendliest, happiest dogs you will ever meet! Groot is looking for a very special home who will love him unconditionally! He is otherwise healthy, up to date on vaccinations, neutered and microchipped.
